It is educational and fun for every age. Bush Wildlife is always available to help insured local animals in need. I recommend to all my family and friends to visit... More

Stopped by to see the turtles and learn about their habits, what they eat, nesting, etc. Very informative. We saw several sea turtles that were recuperating from various types of injuries and illnesses. There is a small museum, a nice gift shop and the outdoor pools where they house the recuperating turtles. Learned quite a bit about the various types... More

We visit Zoos everywhere we go but this was the best little park we have found in Florida! It's free but we made donations throughout the park. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the animals seemed right at home in their natural habitat. Loved this place and would visit again!

I love taking my boys here. They get to run around along shaded pathways to see a variety of local wildlife. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. Bring a lunch and have a picnic after you've seen the animals. They have a story time which includes a small animal viewing. It's really cute. If you go, please give a... More

This is a local attraction which allows one to see a variety of animals at no cost (though donations are appreciated). The sanctuary is placed in a natural setting amongst lush vegetation and next to a mangrove/swamp area. There are some interesting animals which can be seen including panthers, owls, turkeys, gators and snakes. They have some educational shows during... More

We didn't see all of the grounds as we were caught in a rain storm. The outdoor trail was nice and we saw some interesting birds turtle and what was possibly an alligator in one of the ponds. The bears and cats were interesting, but they looked unhappy and bored. I would have liked to see the rest of the... More

I recently found about this neighborhood attraction. Its located in a shady natural habitat. I was surprised with the amount and species of rescued animals that this wonderful non-profit organization takes care of. The Black Bear Docent was very knowledgeable. Really enjoyed her lecture. I also loved the really cool owl exhibit. The nice thing about this venue is that... More

A great place to see some of Florida's natural and exotic wildlife. It's a great nonprofit organization that helps rehabilitate Florida's wildlife.
